Pumpkin spice and everything nice. Isn’t that how the saying goes?! There is a lot that you can do with this pumpkin spice recipe and it is a staple for fall baking. This festive spice mixture is simple, made with only four ingredients, and will add a spark of pumpkin spice flavor to your favorite drinks and treats. Sure, you can buy pumpkin spice pre-made at the store but a lot of us have these four ingredients already in our pantry so let’s save a bit of money!

What can I make with pumpkin spice?

There are so many pumpkin recipes out there that call for pumpkin spice. I’m talking about hundreds of recipes (probably). so I’m sure there will be plenty of options for you. One of my favorite things to use pumpkin spice in is pumpkin pie or pumpkin cookies. These classics are a fall favorite around my house so it’s helpful to have a batch of pumpkin spice waiting in the pantry. Another way to use pumpkin spice is in coffee drinks! Pumpkin spice lattes are a go-to for fall!

How to store homemade pumpkin spice

You can store this pumpkin spice the same way you store your other spices. I use a small mason jar and label the lid so I can easily identify which spice mix it is. You could also find some very cute spice jars on Amazon like this one! These are handy for homemade spices or just to organize your mix-match spices to make them look more cohesive. 

If your pumpkin spice has been sitting for a while, give the jar a little shake (with the lid on, of course) to mix it up if any settling occurs. I often make homemade taco seasoning and have to do the same thing if it hasn’t been used in a while. Once it’s mixed, simply scoop out the amount you need and store the leftover back in your spice cabinet.
